Samantha Demakis doesn’t want a mate right now. She wants to finish her degree and work as a doctor in third world countries. Her birth-rite and family obligations to her status as the first daughter of a noble family beg to differ. In fact, even her wolf seems to be against her. When a chance encounter reveals the man who might just be a perfect fit, will she run? Or will she fight?
Chase Michaels has been alone for seventy-five years. He’s fought in Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, and Afghanistan in the US Army. Somewhat resigned to never finding his true mate, he is shocked when his wolf reacts so strongly to a woman he runs into in the airport. Unprepared for the politics and snobbery of the noble families, Chase finds himself fighting in a different type of war —a war for the heart of a woman he knows should be his.
A lot of things are chasing Sam, but who or what will catch her in the end?
Novella – 22K word count – Paranormal / Witches/ Shifter Romance
It’s been a while since I read a shifter romance. I received this novella as a freebie, and thought why not. Ms. Shannan quickly pulled me into the Vegas Mates world by introducing me to the Demakis family. Samantha Demakis is very independent and wants to choose her own mate. Sam and Chase desperately want to explore this newfound connection they seem to have, but her parents have other plans in mind for her…one that includes an old family tradition.
Chasing Sam is definitely on the short and spicy side. I heard that the series gets better and better with each installment. This one gets you nicely acquainted with some of the Vegas Mates characters that I now want to read the next one, Saving Margaret!
Stay tuned! Krystal Shannan will be stopping by in a few days with a special guest post!
